Hello everybody! 30 year old female from Louisiana here. My Linkin Park story starts like many of yours’ do, I’m sure. I fell in love with LP in 2001. I was obsessed with them throughout my early teens. Street Team, LPU, the whole shebang. Also, was an avid LP fanfiction reader and writer. As I grew older, I slowly grew out of my LP obsession. In fact, Minutes to Midnight was the last album I ever bought. I’d hear songs on the radio from the newer albums and just couldn’t get on board. It wasn’t MY Linkin Park.

When Chester passed, I was going through the absolute worst time of my life. I was suffering from depression, extreme anxiety, suicidal thoughts and had actually just gotten out of a nine day stint in a psychiatric ward two days before Chester died. I was physically incapable of letting it in. I didn’t even have the energy to mourn the loss of the love of my teenage years.

A few months ago, I saw on Reddit that Numb had reached one billion views on YouTube. And with that, I fell deep into the rabbit hole. I watched all the old music videos, which led to watching all the old DVDs. I started listening to all the albums I had missed and realized that Linkin Park had changed into something amazing while I wasn’t listening. And my overwhelming sadness and anger over Chester’s death consumed me whole.

So, here I am. Back to reading all of our “grown up” fanfiction and I’m loving it. The more I read, the more I had the itch to write again. I’m thrilled to be writing LP FF again and I’m so excited to share it with all of you.
